Great show to check out again...it's in my all-time Top 10...the Shake is remarkable for the sustained gritty guitar jam that Jerry plays from the end of verse 3, snaking all the way thru to the end of the tune...he doesn't overwhelm the other players, it's instead a subtle but ever-present backdrop of insanely dead-on blues/funk grit...

Show also has my favorite all time "Miracle" and a surprisingly good "Dark Star"

Next night (1/11/79) was my first show.
